Yay! More non-alcoholic drinks the merrier! As a convert to Islam, I have been struggling to get a decent option when out with friends. The market is getting a bit better, but every single extra brand is totally totally totally worth cheering for!

what was the name of the instagram thing?

Similar question as Jessica - how did you manage to get going with that idea? Where did you get the funds to make 180 bottles to sell at the market? Equally, how did you find the time to do it? Were you working at the time or were you financially able to not go back to work so you could focus on this idea? So many questions, sorry! :)

Where/how did you find the freelancers you are collaborating with?
Marilyn

Thanks Bethan, that was brilliant! Did you register as a sole trader or a limited company when you got started?

Did you have to get sign off at all from a legal perspective i.e. for ingredients, health and safety etc. If so, was it expensive?

Do you see a big differentiation in your suggestions for service rather than product based businesses? I've been looking at social media management which I do in my day job but looking to branch out. wondered if things were easier with a tangible product on offer

I was thinking about making toys, but the number of rules I would have to meet put me off immediately e.g. insurance in case a baby swallows part of it or something
Marilyn

Think that might be called liability insurance

How do you manage childcare? Do you work when there’s someone else to look after the baby, or work while they’re happy entertaining themselves?

I sell baby clothing. I started of as my eldest being a brand rep/model for Spanish clothing as we loved the style. my friends and family started asking where I was getting it.. ended up selling to family and friends and then there friends and so on... it’s not a big business and we do it from home using the spare room.
Marilyn

Samantha, that sounds wonderful. Well done

Samantha - sounds amazing. I love buying from small boutiques for my baby boy. I found shops have lots of baby girl clothes but not nice baby boy clothes.

I had the same issue. we have 4 girls and 1 boy.. we struggle to match them due to ages as well.
